"The Annual Register ... provided a summary of the year's historical events, reprinted the main public documents ... reviewed chief books ... and offered a convenient reference book to be added to year by year ... In 1780, the dissenters started Robinson's New Annual Register. In 1784 Andrew Kippis ... suggested to Robinson that [Godwin] should be engaged as an assistant ... and employed to compile the historical section. It as Godwin's first and - as events were to turn out - the only regular employment he ever enjoyed"[St. Clair p. 31]. Godwin continued the work until 1790 and St. Clair notes that he may have done part of this 1791 volume.
